Publisher's Summary

Professional biographer Carl Rollyson has pioneered a new kind of biography for children and adults alike. His narrative of Marie Curie's life is rendered in simple, precise prose. Each chapter is designed to provoke further discussion and research into the life and career of one of the century's greatest scientists and - as Rollyson shows - one of the most important figures in human history. At a time when the ethics of science and of scientists have been called into question, Rollyson's searching examination of Madame Curie's methods and morality makes this a sharply focused and challenging biography. Marie Curie emerges from this account as a woman of great integrity and self-discipline, acutely conscious of her historic role, keenly devoted to protecting her private life, and yet willing to shape her personality to the public roles demanded of her.
